Warner Bros. Pictures has released the first teaser poster for Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming thriller Contagion. Cleverly mixing the names of world cities with the title of the film the poster has a very Outbreak/28 Days Later/Monster type feel to it.
The film sees a killer virus on the loose, infecting the Earth’s population at an ever increasing rate, and shows the effect the virus has on the populace and the efforts being made to stop it. Sure it’s been done before, but it’s Soderbergh behind the camera.
The director has gotten himself a stellar cast to work with too, with Matt Damon, Marion Cotillard, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Winslet and Laurence Fishburne all starring.
Contagion will be released in Irish cinemas October 21st.
Contagion follows the rapid progress of a lethal airborne virus that kills within days. As the fast-moving epidemic grows, the worldwide medical community races to find a cure and control the panic that spreads faster than the virus itself. At the same time, ordinary people struggle to survive in a society coming apart.
